    https://drive.google.com/file/d/13KJKF5oJxSzqRkwbaZa8NvGsBpcHWVxt/view?usp=sharing and download, once downloaded use a zip file extractor such as 7zip

     

    Once extracted, click on the folder and then you will see the following:

    Good afternoon Kathleen,

     

    Thank you for sending this over! We’re having difficulty downloading the files you sent over. It’s giving us a “403 Error” and saying we don’t have access to the files. Could you please try resending?

     

    Also, in regard to your suggestion about file transfers, we’ll consider looking into this in the future if we think it’s something we may want to feature on our site! Whenever we receive files from government entities we always download them, and upload them on our site so that a permanent copy lives there. Additionally, we always need to review any files before they are posted publicly on our site and that’d be harder to do with a direct file transfer feature on our site.

     

    We appreciate all your help!

    Please see attachment in response to this request. If a Department Head folder does not contain files, then no communication to or from that person exists as it pertains to the request.

     

    Please let me know when the file has been downloaded from Google Drive. Have you considered adding an upload link on your website for file transfers?
